      Wow! I love cooking with tea, and this is a lovely way to do so. The tea gives this dish a lot of flavor without using a sugary/fatty/salty sauce like a lot of stir-fry-type dishes. I only had about 3/4 cup of basmati rice, so I added 1/4 cup Bhutanese red rice, which has the same cooking time. I am looking forward to trying this with brown basmati rice (I would adjust the amounts and cooking time). I doubled the garlic and ginger and used a whole bag of frozen stir-fry veggies. Alas, I did not have any sesame seeds on hand. I did add 1/2 pound sauteed tofu for protein and served with low-sodium soy sauce, as suggested. I will definitely make this again and again.

      Good rice! I sauteed half an onion and a cup of fresh carrots for the veggies. The green tea is very mild in it. We liked this with the optional soy and chili sauce. I could see lime and cashews working well as additions too.

      This was good rice but not great rice. I think I'll make it again to see what I can do to improve my results. I like the idea of using tea in a rice dish, but on my first try it was pretty bland. Thanks for posting, made for ZWT.
